Cracking post-cold war thriller
5 November 1999 | by mcdaidSee all my reviews

Cracking post cold war thriller set largely in former Eastern Germany. All of cast on top form, especially leads, Thaw and Turner. Climax is satisfying and has an unexpected sting in the tail. Ambivolence of intelligence services in post cold war era is well portrayed.
